2015 Razzie Nominations Have Been Announced

Press Release: Hollywood was not happy with box office returns for 2014, their lowest-grossing year in recent history. Despite a handful of high-grossing hits, there were way more major misses — movies based on recycled premises and re-worked concepts that were already tired a decade or more ago, the cinematic equivalent of re-treaded tires. Those are the films The Golden Raspberry Awards have annually "saluted" since 1980.

Nominees for the 35th Annual Razzie Awards, satirizing the Worst Achievements in Film for 2014, include new names and several Repeat Offenders, returning for more pie-in-the-face/light-hearted joshing by the one Tinsel Town trophy derby no one sets out to win. And, in a new spin on the entire Razzie concept, this year launches a new category acknowledging that past nominees and "winners" can (and often do) go on to far far better things. Contenders for the inaugural Razzie Redeemer Award include Ben Affleck, Jennifer Aniston, Mike Myers, Keanu Reeves, and Kristen Stewart. [Updated with winners in Bold]
